FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Vesicle mediated protein sorting plays an important role in segregation of intracellular molecules into distinct organelles. Genetic studies in yeast have identified more than 40 vacuolar protein sorting (VPS) genes involved in vesicle transport to vacuoles. This gene encodes the human homolog of yeast class C Vps18 protein. The mammalian class C Vps proteins are predominantly associated with late endosomes/lysosomes, and like their yeast counterparts, may mediate vesicle trafficking steps in the endosome/lysosome pathway.

PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a reporter allele exhibit preweaning lethality. Mice homozygous for a conditional allele activated in the nervous system exhibit impaired neuron migration and neurodegeneration associated with increased apoptosis and impaired autophagy and endocytosis.
